A woman will draw an 85-year-old girl

Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 5.24.20 PM.pngComics always draws an emotional response, and when the artist changes, well, then all bets are off. In this case, “Nancy” is now drawn by a woman.

Andrews McMeel Syndication will announce that the cartoonist Olivia Jaimes has inherited the iconic strip and will provide a “21st-century female perspective,” says John Glynn, Andrews McMeel’s president and editorial director.

Good grief! The last thing we need…

… is a tariff that no one asked for that will cost American jobs. More blows to the U.S. NewsPAPER industry.

I’m sure there are more stories and editorials about this, but here are a few:

Tariffs on paper will hurt us, and our readers

You have read about the new tariffs on imported aluminum and steel, and on products from China. Now it seems our own business — newspaper printing and publishing — will take some casualties in a trade war over paper.

Trump’s Tariffs Are Already Costing American Jobs

Tariffs on Canadian paper, imposed at the behest of a New York hedge fund, are claiming 50 U.S. jobs — so far.

US publishers worry about pricier newsprint with new tariffs

Newspaper publishers across the U.S. already strapped by years of declining revenue say they’re dealing with an existential threat: Recently imposed tariffs on Canadian newsprint driving up their business costs.

It’s not surprising that President Trump, after campaigning on the promise of a more aggressive trade policy, would take aim at China. It’s an economic competitor and geostrategic rival with whom the U.S. ran a $375 billion trade deficit in 2017.

Editorial:  Drop counterproductive tariffs on imported Canadian newsprint

It’s not surprising that President Trump, after campaigning on the promise of a more aggressive trade policy, would take aim at China. It’s an economic competitor and geostrategic rival with whom the U.S. ran a $375 billion trade deficit in 2017.

Sing a song, a Newspaper song!

 

This is more of a ditty, but here are some full-length newspaper songs:

I don’t know why this is called Newspaper Song… If you can figure it out please let me know.

I guess this one can be considered a “classic”

 

Again, What the what??!

A sort of remake of the above Eddie Fischer song

 

This is a funny one!

One for the kids from back in the day — guessing the Eighties:

No lyrics here, but the Stomp crew does newsprint some mad justice

Of course, Pete Seeger sang about newspapers and Newspaper Men … it’s wonderful to represent the Press

And finally, I’m going out on the limb for this one, but since I don’t speak Punjabi, I’m not 100 percent or even 1 percent sure this is about newspapers, but hey, they hold up newspapers in several scenes and I do hear the English word, Newspaper in there, so we’ll say yes to this one!

 

 

MLK keepsake edition

On the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution publishes its 12-page keepsake edition with reprints of original columns, front pages, and photos.

Proud to say that NewsPAPERS still do these kinds of things, and do it well.

I wonder 50 years from now will there be a printed 100th-anniversary keepsake edition, or will it just be slideshows on the interwebs?

Thanks to my good friends over at the Newseum, here are a handful of front pages with anniversary coverage.

 

NewsPAPERS help Alzheimer’s patients

Saw this story in The Daily Mail, about Glenner Town Square “a day care center for adults with Alzheimer’s and dementia in San Diego, Calif., run by the nonprofit George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Center.”

The new facility, built inside a warehouse, was created to be an immersive reminiscence therapy environment, where patients, or participants as they’re called, can walk through different interactive ‘storefronts’ including a diner, a movie theater and a library. Each of the locations are designed as if they were from the 1950s, meant to help jog the participants’ memories.

And of course, there are NewsPAPERS:
